A little before noon I opened my front door on my way out to run an errand. A buck with complicated velvet antlers (10 points? 12? more?) jumped up from where he had been resting in the shade of the house and moved away from me. Another buck (maybe 6 points) closer to the south end of the house moved away into my neighbor's yard and the senior buck followed.

I've seen evidence of deer in the yard over the years -- Tracks. Droppings. Chewed branches on my lilac bush. Shapes in my headlights late at night. But this is the first time I've seen them in daylight or so close to the house.

I wish I hadn't left my phone on the coffee table... I wasn't able to get a picture.
